The Lusophonic Disappointment of Sciongrad is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.359 billion Scionites love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villa Real. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Meat-eating is frowned upon, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, Max Barry is this year's Miss Sciongrad, and Leader has just been declared ruler of Sciongrad in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown. Sciongrad's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Cult of the Clove, and its currency is the Shield.

Sciongrad is ranked 26th in International Democratic Union and 53,381st in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 23 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
